tulips on the roof


 

These tulips looked even more glorious atop the roof and against the bluest of skies today.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Seasons

Thanks to Jen’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Seasons, yesterday we visited Vancouver’s beautiful Queen Elizabeth Park and captured, in a few snapshots, a sunny Saturday afternoon in one of our city’s special places.

Queen Elizabeth Park, Vancouver

The open crocuses, rhododendrons and snowdrops, a wedding in the sunshine, children playing peek-a-boo around the Henry Moore sculpture and dancing in front of the fountains, the tulips and daffodils getting ready to burst through, a leisurely cyclist, and all against the backdrop of the city, blue sky and cumulus clouds – I hope your spirits are as uplifted as ours were.

I’ll be back when the flowers are in bloom to share the glorious array of colours that await.

Thanks Jen.
